The new season of Orange is the New Black arrived yesterday on Netflix, and I'm two episodes in. Lots of drama and craziness. One thing that stuck with me was Chapman's new cellmate, who comes in as the picture of helplessness, in dire need of the extra layers of dermis you need just to survive prison. And as Chapman lets her guard down, it's revealed(by one of the guards) that this nicey-nice new roomie had killed her three children.
It's a great dramatic effect finding out the person you thought was harmless and safe is in fact much more dangerous. And wicked. The expression on the woman's face, and Chapman's, are priceless.
Okay, that's the part that really creeped me out. But then that's why I'm watching the show. Bring it on.
Music news. The session with the bass player never happened. He got stuck in a traffic jam on I-55, and it kept getting later, so I suggested just re-scheduling. So some time next week.
Some guitar practice yesterday. Sooner or later, I'll have one worth posting on YouTube. But I'm still taping some of my sessions, to hear what's right and what still needs work. I'm in a bit of a slump these days, and the only thing you can do to get out of it is just to keep working. Harder, even. Or at least smarter.
In the 52 years I've been playing guitar, I've had a few of these down periods, where nothing seems to work. But I've always emerged from them. And I'll climb out of this one, sooner or later. In the meantime, plenty to check out on YouTube. I have a lot more good days than bad ones.
This is all the news I can think of here at 9:53 in the morning, still nursing that first cup of Morning Joe. And it looks like it's ready for a refill. Thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. Happy Saturday to you. Jeg er outa here. More later.
